Random BSODS at most games

Hello,
i have been visiting your forums a long time now,trying to figure out whats causing my bsods,but it seems that i cant figure it out myself.
I have read the instructions on posting a bsod thread but the Sf program doesnt work for me.
I have run bluescreenview though and i uploaded a txt file "explaining" each of my crashes.I had a fresh format yesterday and then i started playing a game, again(bsod).
Note*:Bsods happened even before the format.
I have my specs on my profile.
If you need anything more from me please ask.
Thanks in advance.

From that text file the main causes are bellow, try to find updated drivers for the ATI card (try to install without the catalyst software) and the Ralink card.

I'd also suggest swapping Avast for Microsoft security essentials.

netr28ux.sys - Ralink RT2870 series USB802.11n Wireless Adapter Driver (you may have a different manufacturer)
aswSP.SYS - avast!
atikmdag.sys - ATI Video driver

Yeah if it's not used disabling it would be a good idea.

Go to C:\Windows\Minidump\ and zip up the dump files and attach them to the thread so we can take a real look at them.
